in his own defense, if you are sedated even on a sedation holiday, can you see any circumstance where that could be considered competency? >> absolutely not. and that's why he needs to have a lawyer present. the idea that a lawyer is not there when a judge is talking to him and that the judge is -- if it's happening, is playing this game with the prosecutors of appearing, not warning him of his right to have council, this raises serious problems. this escalates the issue beyond government officials, beyond police officials or fbi officials trying to deny him his rights, to the judiciary denying him his rights if in fact the magistrate didn't warn him of his right to council and didn't really wait until a lawyer was there. the public defender's ready to come into this case. they're 15 minutes away from the hospital. there's no reason why if it's true, now we don't know the facts, a lawyer was not present with him when that magistrate appeared in his hospital room. >> well, let's hope there was one. and for anybody who thinks he doesn't need a lawyer and why should we protect this man's
detainee interrogation group made up of a bunch of high-ranking officials, fbi, cia, defense department. beyond the obvious of why, mark, what are the first questions they will ask him? >> well, beyond the why, of course, is who directed you? did you do this upper the direction of a foreign government or foreign service group and then the questions will go from there. were you funded by any organization or group? what did you seek to gain by doing this atrocity? et cetera, et cetera. go down the line. they'll also want to know, more importantly, is well the web. who they contacted. who else knew in the u.s.? did they have any aid and support right there in the boston area or anywhere else in the united states of america or around the world? >> mark, unfortunately, i'm not sure you can hear me. at all. >> i can hear you now. >> guys we're having some technical difficulties. >> i can hear you now. >> try this and see. >> i apologize for that. >> mark, i don't think you need to apologize for anything. i think we're having some technical difficulties here. i've gone through three ifbs to tr
will determine whether he will get legal counsel. he will get a defense attorney and then therefore, the case proceeds. >> from a federal law enforcement official, being told the suspect is alive. he has unspecified medical needs. we have to see what those are. it could affect whether it's the courthouse or whether you get medical treatment at another site. according to this official, an aggressive sweep of the scene is underway to see if there are explosives on the site. he was taken out of the boat without incident. they are having everything in the area, including the s.w.a.t. team, the bomb teams, the sniffer teams, to make sure they don't have a volatile, dangerous crime scene environment. this suspect is alive, has unspecified medical needs and according to that federal official, an aggressive sweep of that scene under way. >> i can tell you the police officers standing a little bit further down from the block certainly seem a lot more happy right now at this moment. the least tense that we've seen them all day long. no doubt, the city of boston, watertown, all surrounding areas, a lot
a 12-gauge shotgun and have a good defensive effect. and there's the element of surprise. you've got police all over the place in watertown, so i don't really think that this is applicable. i think there are people that want to make this argument, but 12-gauge shotgun, there are many weapons, 2,000-plus weapons that are available to people for choice without an assault weapon. >> we're running out of time. so i'm not going to give you a chance to answer that question, congressman king. i'll give you a chance to answer the other question. this has also spilled into the debate over immigration reform. some conservatives like charles grassley, senator from iowa, are saying, before we reform the system, we ought to focus more on who we let into this country. your response? >> first of all, i don't think it should have a severe impact on the immigration debate. i do think it should focus on whether or not it should be refined, and if people are coming from a country which has terrorist background, if there's a strong terrorist element in that country, there should be extra vetting for peo
intelligence and it should become an integral part of our civil defense. do you think you have to acknowledge that and in a sense, activate that in some form better from capitol hill? are we spending our resources in this country in the right place? >> i think we have to do more to encourage as has been done in new york, if they see something, say something and also urge and encourage the local community to speak out whenever they see anything that's out of the ordinary, even if it involves people of their own ethnic group and their own religion and their own persuasion. if they see something report it because it will come out of these local communities. >> i think there should be more direction on that. i think if more funding is necessary, absolutely, and they worry too much about political correctness and we have to get the message out and we also, though, i think, have to be telling local police and if we have to provide more funding at the federal level for them to build up their own intelligence unit and not just rely on the federal government and that's at the federal level. >> congres
